that a fatal penetration of their body retained the exact form of the
They were no match for Tyrant.
Like most beings of semi-humanoid organic structure, removal of one's heart was fatal, and their bodies froze in space.

(Cosmic Powers Unlimited#3 (fb)) - Following Thanos'
theft of Tyrant's cosmic energy sphere, Tyrant punished the race the
race he had appointed military protectors of his worldship. He tore the
hearts out of every male and threw their body husks into space.
One of these frozen cadavers was found by the extradimensional entity Jakar, who had recently returned to Universe-616. Jakar found that the victim's dense physiology had retained a perfect mold of the fist that had burned its his chest cavity.
